After reaching stage of enlightenment, if an enlightened one again indulged in daily routines of life… one would feel all the inconsistencies of mortal world. This happened with Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, the spiritual master of Swami Vivekananda. When people asked him why he suffered… he plainly replied, only to assuage sufferings of those dear to him.
If a block of silver is placed in the open, in no time it will again appear absolutely black. The silver will react with oxygen and oxidation would result in the whole block going black. One may even not recognize the same old block. This external oxidation is temporal; ephemeral… could be removed with time! Once enlightenment is gained, it was an irreversible process! However if one continued indulging in daily routines of life… oxidation was possible, a coating of temporal external dross impurities which could be cleaned any given moment of time!
After reaching stage of enlightenment one that lives like Mahavira does not face any problems in life. One was totally free of inhibitions of physical manifest life. For an enlightened one like Mahavira the whole world was one large extended family.
